MISCELLANEOUS SHIPPING. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 25 May 1857

MISCELLANEOUS SHIPPING. The Tasmania, Steamer, left the Wharf a little after 5'on Saturday evening for Melbourne with a number of cabin and'steerage passengers and a fair cargo, principally fruit. Accident to the Govf.riment Schooner. Blanche,-This vessel, whiht riding at her an- chor under Granité Island, during a gale from the east, on the 8th May, parted from lier small chains at ten o'clock in the morning, and grounded on a sandy beach hoar the Government Cottage. The occident was partly owing to a defective link of the chain ; but some blame it appear i is attachable to the master of the Blanche, who has, in conse- quence, been dismissed from her command. She was happily got off in a few hours afterwards without having received any damage.-S. A, Register.

J'Sin,--The trticles which have appeared in your jmirrial/ih exposition of a Land Scheme, have ex- cited 'considerable attention : that a liberal and ju- dicious policy in the disposal of the Crown Lands ihust be adopted, no one will gaitifay, and many of the hints promulgated by the writer of the articles jn question arc well worthy of serious con- sideration. There is, however, one point of great magnitude, which has been overlooked, and upon which the \cry possession (of the land hinges, to which, ivith your pcimia'sion, I will now draw your attention, and that of the government and the public. By what right has the British government origi- nally obtained possefsion nf the lands of Tas- mania?

HEROIC CONDUCT OF A LADY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 25 May 1857

HEBOIC CONDUC r OF A LADY. A New York journal publishes the fallow- ing account of Mrs. Martha Ann Patten, a young lady twenty years of age, who comman- ded a vessel fifty-six days,during her husband's illness : Our readers remember an account taken from one ot the California papers, relative to the heroic conduct of Mrs Martha Ann Patten, wife of Captain Patten, of the ship Neptune's Car, who, during her husband's illness, took charge of the vessel and navigated it safely into San Francisco. This lady, together vytK her husband, who is now so sick that he is not expected to live, arrived in this port in the George Law, and are now stopping at the Battery Hotel. Her story is an interesting and painful one, and shows how much a weak delicate woman can do when a groat emergency calls out her powers. Mrs. Patten was horn at East Boston, of wealthy parents, and received an excellent education, and was in every respect tenderly nurtured und cared for. She is now about 20 yeai'3 of age, "...

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE CITY AltTICIilä. Mercury Office, Saturday Evening. 'Hie state ot the Markets, generally, is very un- satisfactory, and with the exception of a few leading articles of colonial produce, no settled price cun be quoted, the stagnation in trade preventing any speculation, or the pushing of any large sales, even if parties were inclined to pul chase. _ The grain market leinains nearly without altera- tion; wheat is bought at former quotations by the millers, but merely to meet present demands, 7s. being the highest figure given, and that only for firit-rntc samples : the supply is fully equal to the demand, Oats, however, are in great demand for exportation, and have advanced to from 10s. to 10s. 6d. per bushel : one holder parted yesterday with 100 bushels at the latter figure, and a further advance is expected.

DREADFUL COLLIERY EXPLOSION NEAR BARNSLEY. ONE HUNDRED AND SEVENTY MEN STIFLED OR BURNED TO DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 25 May 1857

DREADFUL COLLIERY EXPLOSION NEAR BARNSLEY. ' ONE HUNDRED AND SEVENTY MEN STIFLED OR BURNED TO DEATH. A kvf minutes after twclvo o'clock.on Thurs- day, an awful explosion took place at the Lund HUÍ Colliery, situated about half a mile from the Wombwell station on the South York- shire Railway. The pit which is about 220 yards deep, belongs to Taylor & Co., and is worked by separate shifts of men night and day. The day workers, to the number of 212 men and 8 lads, descended at G o'clock on Thursday morning. At 12 o'clock 20 or 30 of them who resided near tho pit, came up to dinner, the rest remaining to partake of that meal in the pit. Shortly afterwards a fearful explosion occurred which shook the ground a great distance around, and the frame in which the corves descend was blown up the shaft and lodged in the gearing above the pit mouth. Numbers of men from neighbouring collieries flocked to render assistance, and up to seven o'clock 16 men had been drawn up alive, some of t...

NEW ZEALAND. WELLINGTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 25 May 1857

NEW ZEALAND. WHLLINOTON. By way of Sydney, we have received files of the Wellington Independent to the 23th of April. Tlie scarcity of water consequent on the discovery of gold near Nelson, had compelled the Ciolxclles Copper Mining Company to close the works at the mine. The prospect of New Zealand being a gold-producing country did not seem very welcome at Wellington. ? The Independent of the 15th, in a leading article, says :-" We do not hesitate to express our conviction that morally and socially it would have been better had no available gold- fields been found in New Zealand, but as the fact can no longer be doubted that such have been discovered, we think it incumbent on the various Provincial Governments to take all possible steps to encourage the foun- dation of prospecting parties in their various localities. Notwithstanding the confident dictum of some of the Cn!Mi geologists that gold did not exist iii New Zealand, it has been found r.ot only in the extreme north and sou...

I In this case, Mr. Brewer, on Tuesday, moved for a rule nisi, to show cause, why a < writ of attachment should not issue against Charles Guire, ono of the defendants, for dis- obedience of the order of an award, and also, of a. rule ot court. On that occasion, the learned Counsel cited various cases in support of his motion, and their Honors deferred their decision until to dav, in order to look into the cases. Mr. Brewer now stated that he had looked into the cases more minutely, and although, they did not go to the full length of the oir çumataoçes in the preEçnt justanw, still, thçre I I was sufficient ho thought, to enable the Court 'to infer, that the "defendant, although not per- sonally served,.must have been cognizant of the service, and of the contents of the order and rule of court.

Many of the Representatives are prepared, we believe, to welcome the New Ministry with hospitality-placing great confidence in their desire and ability to serve tito Country ; whilst a few, as a nutter of course, will give them tlie cold shoulder. When we say-we sincerely and earnestly trust that the injurious opposition which has hitherto been oflcied to all practical legisla- tion, will not b2 persisted in, we give expres- sion to a sentiment in the realization of which we have no faith. The time for remonstrance hi» gone by, and tho' nifttfcr has become Ja very simple one.

IMPROVEMENT OF THE LAW OF LIBEL. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 25 May 1857

IMPROVEMENT OF THE LAW OF LIBEL. Lord Campbell has moved for and otained a select committee " to consider whether the privilege now enjoyed by reports of the pro- ceedings of Courts of Justice might properly be extended to reports of the proceedings of the two Houses of Parliament, and of any and what other assemblies or public meetings, un- der any or what conditions and restrictions." After stating his objections to a general re- moval of existing restraints upon the right of publishing faithful reports cf public meetings without distinction, the Chief Justice made the following observations : " At the same time, there ought unquestion- ably to be a privilege extended to journalists, in doing that which wa3 for tho public benefit. If there were no reports published of the de- bates in that and the other House of Parlia- ment, their lordships and the members of the other house would probably feel dissatisfied, while tho public would suffer a great incon- venience.
